Homecoming 2008

Alex attended homecoming 2008 with Alex, last weekend! No that is not a typo, and no he didn’t go by himself! This was Alex’s first dance. He said he danced a lot and was sore when he got home. Here are some photos of Alex & Alex with friends:

Maryland Visit

Maria had a business meeting in DC in June and Alex and I went along for the ride or flight. Alex stayed at Jame’s house. We talked about our upcoming China trip, played poker and visited the Georgetown Campus for a tour.

One Week Of School

Less than one week of school left… Alex is staying focused on school and final exams, but he is looking forward to summer. We’ve booked an Alaskan Cruise for later in the summer. We’re all excited, as we have never been on a cruise before!

Band Concert

Maria and I attended Alex’s band concert last night. They sounded ok.

Update

We had a great time in Florida. The weather was mid 70′s with some rain. The humidity helped to heal my dry, cracked skin. I think I was looking five years younger, but I’m drying out again!
